Tomorrow -wedneday- he'll test a different engine to the one he's been using all season. In case this new engine brings improved performance, he only has one engine left out of rotation, so he'd only be able to use one engine on this new spec before he incurred in penalty.

Yamaha doesn't know how to make good and powerfull engine... they only know how to make good chasis with an 4 inline engine that work best for the weight distribution.
Better engine? Faster engine? stop dreaming, ask a better suspension, they can give you that.

If Dani wins it at Misano hes got a good shot, but Yam+Jorge are pretty good there, Yam should have won at Brno, will be interesting, cause after Misano,... Aragon, Motegi, and Sepang will be more difficult for Jorge, in fact I might put money on Dovi getting very close and maybe even surpassing Jorge at Sepang. Casey could really help Dani get the championship this year though. A shame YFR have only backed one rider this year, Ben wont be able to help decide the championship unless he pulls a Bautista or YFR actually support his side of the garage.

I just hope that all run well to Yamaha!! Will be very sad if they have problems and all end him tears to Lorenzo.. Will be great chance to Pedrosa thats 4sure!! I also agree that Yamaha never was the best on creating a fast engine compared to honda.. But Yamaha is pure machine pure Balance one pure package=)!! I hope they find good solutions i remember when Rossi Come to Yamaha the probleme was not Horsepower was the oposite they need one good engine to put power on the ground then they build new solutions to get more POWER.. I just hope they dont forget this and try to make a really better job him terms of Power vs Grip.. If they do like Ducati that only puts Horsepower and forget the rest they will be destrying the Yamaha M1 advantages..

re: "MotoGP title leader Jorge Lorenzo put further laps on the new Yamaha chassis during day one of private testing at Aragon on Tuesday, which he finished 0.488s behind championship rival Dani Pedrosa"

rossi would say that's fine. as long as the kit gets me within .5 second, "human DRS" can takeover and make the pass.
